One More Gift


Dinner was ODD....I had made a Sweet Potato Casserole to take the PWOC's Thanksgiving celebration but by the time evening arrived I just couldn't drive the back roads.....I was up at 0330 as Michael was worrying I'd ordered the wrong camera for his birthday....seems my comment about "Amazon never failing me before," left him thinking I ordered a kit other than the one he'd wanted. ::snort::  Anyway, at dinner we had salad, fruit, pasta and sweet potato casserole. ::snort:: 

Michael had thought his camera wouldn't arrive until after Thanksgiving. I knew it had left Oakland Saturday night...and today it arrived on our door.  We had a bit of fun with  presenting it.....

We discussed John 9 in family circle. We talked about the man born blind, Jesus healing him and reaffirming Himself as the Light of the World. I informed all we were going to act this one out. The kids had their parts. Michael was the blind man. 


Stacia (Jesus) prepares to welcome him back from the pool of Siloam (BTW the spitting into mud was quite fun). He's hamming it up - he can see......

 Took him quite a bit of time and I finally got him directed towards the box in the center of the room that he wasn't noticing as he "saw" all sorts of new things. ::grin::

Nikon D610 and stuff  

 Unfortunately between the two of us we neglected to get a couple of things he needs....so a bag and flash will be on the way soon. He really is thrilled......this is Michael's I'm over the moon thrilled look. ::snort::

The above was taken with my Olympus and the below with the new Nikon. 

Of course, none of us will be safe as Michael explores the new camera.

It really was amazing. The Olympus is a nice point and shoot that I carry in my purse.

The Nikon D610 is the newest released DSLR from Nikon. The great thing is that I'll be using the D70 from here on out - at least when I'm at home.

I always have to correct color with the olympus the ones with the 610 are untouched, uncorrected and I like them better. This may save time. LOL
